    Second time out (didn't get any pics the first time)


















    Still pretty chilly by me (was about 60 degrees and cloudy with water temp less).

    Had an awesome time for another hour. Another boat wanted to play the first 10 minutes I was out and I got drenched diving under a wave. Love this thing, better than any ski I've ridden. I could be cruising across the lake and bunny hop the thing out of the water...feels like it weighs almost nothing!

    I had a local vinyl guy reupholster the seat in black, ended up costing $90 so I'm happy with it, couple more pics:





    Didn't have a strap put on because I'm the only one that's gonna be riding it in the foreseeable future but can add that at anytime later.

    The handle bars white piece is just done with plastidip:



    Seems to be taking abuse very well; I was leaning over the bars to get out water/snacks a lot today with my sweatshirt/life vest rubbing on it pretty good and no marks.

    Thanks! Was told I was the first jet skier out this year in the area. Very happy I went with a Spark instead of another sport quad.

    Look at it this way. You've got $6,000 or so into your ski. The absolute worst it can do is fall apart after warranty, and you have still lost less value than when most other skis are towed off of the showroom floor! How can you not be happy about this...

    Wow looks even better in these photos... It turned out great! I'm thinking of doing my seat black too. Do you think you can put the same material on the "side panels"?

    If you're talking about plastidipping the side parts, that's what I have done. The right side wasn't completely secured when I towed it to the gas station, fell off and bounced around the foot well a bit, rubbing off some of the black on the corners but for the most part its holding up just fine. Can see no wear from where my knees were on it.

    If you're talking about vinyl, I have no idea but I'm sure someone somewhere could do it.
